of the month, a crucial one. so is the first day of the month, tomorrow. we'll also be joined by john silvia, chief economist at wells fargo to talk through the economic impact of this storm. john, you say this could take as much as $30 billion out of the u.s. economy. any update to that figure? >> earlier comments, a lot of contingency plans, a lot of uncertainty here. but i think that's a fair estimate initially. let's look at governor christie's comments. depending so much on how fast the money gets back into the system and there's rebuilding. having lived in new york, you realize that the winter is coming. there's a huge inventive for people to start getting these things fixed right away. so that money will be put to work. so $30 billion is still our best estimate. at this point in time, depends on how quickly the money is put back into place. but having lived in this area, you probably appreciate the fact that actually a lot of improvements will happen now with better infrastructure, especially on the public sector level, so we actually could see an addition to economic growth in the fi

against hillary and had the war issue against her, beat her on the war issue, took on john mccain when he was really beaten down by then. and here he is facing romney who is a very tough opponent. so this is going to be a close election. they're somewhat equally matched. like one of those swords and sandals movies, though, each guy has a different weapon. they don't have the same tool kit. but one thing obama has in his tool kit, i'll go back to, is hope. you don't run for president with the name of barack hussein obama without hope. i talked to him recently at the al smith dinner, i can't say what he said, but the guy has confidence, i'll tell you that. he has confidence. something tells him he wins. i don't know what it is. it may be delusion narrary, but does have that confidence. he tells us to be hopeful, maybe this is the week he's got to have hope. like a pitcher in the seventh inning two runs back and has to put everybody out for the next three innings but has to hope the batters will come through and give him some bat. he has to hope, just like the pitcher in the seventh inning.
